The weekend is so close you can practically taste it. Here are the edible events going on in the next few days to keep you occupied—and sated, for that matter.

Grist & Toll Farmer Dinner: Chef Bruce Kalman is hosting a collaborative dinner with Grist & Toll at his new restaurant, Union, in Pasadena on Sunday at 5 p.m. Kalman will incorporate G&T's small batch, whole-grain milled fresh flours into five courses for $85 a head. A wine pairing by local favorite Habit Wine is $40 extra. You can find out more info here.

In-N-Out Burger and Wine Pairing: Heck, if there's an In-N-Out University, then a sophisticated wine pairing with SoCal's best burgers isn't that far out of the realm of possibility. Wally's Wines will be hosting their annual gathering this Saturday from noon-3 p.m., making for the ultimate lazy weekend lunch. You can find out more info here.

Kentucky Derby At Bludso's: Our favorite Texas-style barbecue joint always has Mint Juleps on tap, but on Saturday they're only $6 during the racing festivities. As always, there will plenty of TVs throughout to watch the two-minute race, all while noshing on a platter of smoked ribs, collard greens, and mac and cheese. Be sure to save room for pie! You can find out all the vitals here.
